They were joined in the meeting, which took place at the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem, by Archimandrite Alexander (Yelisov), head of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission, and Mr. Ivan Kurovskiy, counselor for economic affairs of the Russian Embassy.

Discussed were matters of mutual interest. After the exchange of memorable gifts Archimandrite Alexander gave a luncheon in honour of the guests.
